In QGIS 2.18 it was possible to download vector data from OpenStreetMap by going into Vector>OpenStreetMap>Download Data. How can we go about this in QGIS 3.0?

    For the moment, you have to wait for the QuickOSM plugin to be updated, or use the Overpass turbo website.

QuickOSM plugin has been released in QGIS 3. It's available in your plugin manager. Then you can find it in the vector menu. https://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/QuickOSM/
